Naturist campsite footpath rerouted after privacy fears

A public footpath that cuts through the middle of a naturist campsite will be rerouted.

The path runs alongside 15 caravan pitches at Dolcoed camping site in Maesycrugiau, Carmarthenshire.

After a process lasting almost two years, the existing path will be blocked up and a new route introduced.

Jo Eveleigh, who runs the campsite with her husband Mike, said: “We’re relieved it’s over and done with and the path is going to be diverted.”

The footpath currently runs to the right of this pond, adjacent to the naturist campsite, but is being rerouted to the left

When plans to change the route were first submitted to Carmarthenshire council, three neighbours opposed it as it would run through a field behind their homes.

Mrs Eveleigh described the original path as “an error” as it ran through the middle of her house – which dates back 200 years – and out of a back door that she does not have.

The path will now be rerouted around the edge of the site.

In its decision, the Planning Inspectorate said the home “pre-dates the definitive map” and acknowledged “some discomfort might also arise to walkers passing the naturist campsite”.
